I am searching for possible Proof that John KNAUSS, son of Gottfried, and John C. KNOUSE are one and the same. At first this seems to be a bit of a stretch, however, Gottfried settled in Whitehall Township, at one time a part of Bucks then Northampton and now Lehigh Counties. Other members of the family immigrated to Northumberland County, now also Union and Snyder Counties. Some of this Family moved into Perry and Juniata Counties about 1830. KNAUSS and KNOUSE are interchangeable spellings in many records. Any information or thoughts would be appreciated. I am willing to share information.
